(Afghan x (Acapulco Gold x Columbian Gold)
Indoor / greenhouse / outdoor
Background: Cantaloupe Skunk is a rare pheno of Mendocino Joe's Skunk. One of the first Skunks bred in the late 70's in Southern California, by Sacred Seeds. The only low odour pheno we've ever found in this strain.
True old school weed!
The ISP spent 32 years, locking her down. Both pheno's of her are very resinous, low odour, and similar high types. She is easy to grow indoors and outdoors, either single cola style, or topped and grown as a shorter, wider bush.
Sativa dominant, with a very social / feel good vibe. Great for a day at the beach, the lake, a walk in the park, or any type of social gathering. A solid 8 on anyone's potency scale. Enjoyable, intense, but not overpowering. She just brightens your day, all the way around.
Indoors: veg 30 days (min) / 45 days is optimal, clones require a veg of 10 days (min) / Flowering time 58 - 65 days / Indoor Height: 3' to 3.75 ' / Indoor yield: 2.5 to 3.5 oz per plant (min).
Good air exchange and low humidity (less than 55 %) in flowering are a plus. For pest and/or disease control, she tolerates neem oil very well.
Outdoors: finishes in late Sept. / Height: 4.5' to 6' / Outdoor yield 7 oz to 10 oz per plant (min).
Approximately 3 in 10, will turn shades of purple late in flower, regardless of temperature. This applies to both pheno types.
Pheno # 1: looks like classic Skunk # 1. It's cola is thick and comes to a spear point at the top. This pheno shows up 70 % of the time.
Pheno # 2: grows slightly taller, the top of it's cola dreads like it's been heavily seeded. This one shows up 30 % of the time.
Stretch: 3/4 to 1 1/4 (moderate stretch) / Resin Profile: High Resin / Odour Description & Flavor Description: a hint of Ripe Cantaloupe / Odour Intensity: Very Low Odour / High Type: Relaxing, Social, Medicinal (for Depression) .
Chem D Bx3
Chem D Bx3
(Chemdawg D x (Chem 91 x pre-Invasion Afghan)
BX 'd to clones of the original mother (repeatedly) .
Background: Around 1994, the ISP decided to put a Chem 91 in seed form. The reasons being, " clones only " can lose vigour (wane) over time, unless optimal conditions can be maintained; and we wanted her in seed form. So, we hit a Chem 91 (clone only mother) with a pre-invasion Afghan father (same source as A-Dawg), to create a two sexed line.
From 94 until 99, we maintained clones of the original mother, and kept selecting multiple males from the (Chem 91 x pre-Invasion Afghan offspring), using them to hit clones of the original mother, to tighten up all Chem 91 traits.
All offspring were tested, and only the, best of the best, were used to move the project forward. Around 2003, a father from that refined Chem 91 line, was used to hit a Chem D (clone only) mother we had obtained. Those were grown out, and multiple fathers from that cross, were used to hit clones of the original Chem D (clone only) mom. All offspring were tested, and only the best fathers were used on the Chem D (clone only) mother.
We went back to the original mother, three times, to tighten up all Chem D traits. That being said, Chem D BX3 can only be described as " One Bad Ass Strain". It's resin covered buds, have the punch to send seasoned stoners into the stratosphere. Very mind expanding, a Stellar "Head" High, with couch locking abilities as well.
It gets one thinking outside the box, Inspires Creativity, and Peaceful Thoughts. However, if over toked, it can totally freak out newbie smokers, so be warned, and avoid the Emergency Room visit.
Potency is a solid 8.5 out of 10
High Type: Creative, Soaring, Medicinal, and Debilitating if over toked.
Resin Profile: High Resin Production
Stretch: 1/2 to 1 times the veg height.
Odour Description: Sweet Earthy Funk, Skunky, with hints of Lemon & Pepper
Flavor Description: Sweet Earthy Funk, with hints of Lemon on the inhale, and sometimes hints of Pepper on the exhale.
Veg time: 40 to 45 days (min) 60 days veg is Best. Flowering time 56 to 70 days / 56 - 63 days gives more of an up head high / 63 - 70 days results in a stoned / couch lock high. The shift is quite dramatic / shocking in terms of effect. So, be sure to harvest at different windows to enjoy all this lady has to offer.
The best yields are obtained with a 60 day veg, and 70 day flowering period.
Yield: depends on growers skills. She's sensitive to temps above 82 F, and high humidity (over 60 % in flowering). She feeds medium to heavy, depending on the grow medium (CEC) rating. She can be grown in soil, sunshine mix, coco and hydro.
Yields 1 ounce minimum per gallon of grow medium (soil, sunshine mix, or coco), upwards to 2 ounces per gallon of grow medium (dialled in) / in Hydro 1 ounce per foot of vertical growth(min), upwards of 2.25 ounces per foot of vertical growth (dialled in).
Pheno # 1: is identical to the clone only mom, in branching, bud structure, smell, taste and potency. This pheno shows up 80 % of the time.
Pheno # 2: is slightly less branchy, but has identical bud structure, smell, taste, and potency. This pheno yields slightly less, than pheno one, and smells more skunky. This pheno shows up only 20% of the time.
Chem D Bx3
Insane Chem 91 regular aka IC91
(ISP's Chem 91 BX2 (f) x ISP's Chem 91 BX3 (m) )
Indoor - greenhouse - outdoor
Plain & simple, she's a Chem 91 on pre-invasion Afghan
Steroids. All the potency, with better yields.
Chem 91 (clone only) acquired in NYC in late 1993, crossed to a pre-invasion Afghan (obtained on the Indus River in late 77 / early 78) during a hash deal. Large selection pool with all acceptable offspring tested. The best male from that cross was repeatedly back crossed to the Chem 91 (clone only) mother, to produce Chem 91 BX1, BX2, and BX3.
This strain is made up of ISP's Chem 91 BX2 (f) x ISP's Chem 91 BX3 (m).
Does best grown in soil, peat moss, or coco.
Hydro only for experienced growers.
Likes a somewhat drier grow medium, avoiding large pH swings and small pots.
Bloom Length: Pheno # 1: 63 -70 days / Pheno # 2: 58-63 days
Pheno # 1 (70 %) : looks like a 50/50 mix of Chem 91 & a pre-invasion Afghan. Requires a 30 to 40 day veg, and 63 to 70 days of flowering for best yields. Cal-mag fed lightly from veg, through the 4th week of flowering. Feed moderate to heavy in both veg and flowering. Forms large main cola, with smaller golf ball sized buds on side branches. Heavy odor during flowering, predominantly chemical smells / Diesel Fuel with hints of Fruit / citrus with sweet & sour undertones. Intense up high, followed a short time
later by heavy body relaxation. Occasional smokers may puke from
the rush of THC.
Pheno # 2 (30 %): looks more pre-invasion Afghan dominant, but veg's faster (than a typical Afghan), she also stretches more once put into flowering. Great potency, like Pheno # 1. Requires a 30 to 40 day veg, 58 to 63 days of flowering for best yields. So, she's a week faster than Pheno # 1. Same feeding requirements. Best topped
to form several large colas (improves yield). Heavy odor during flowering, predominantly Fruity odors / Diesel Fuel / Citrus (sweet oranges & tangy lemons) / with sharp undertones that make your nose tingle / burn. Very nice up high that builds over time, with more body effect earlier in the ride. Occasional smokers may puke if they over indulge (watch out, the flavor lures you in). Stretch: 1 to 1.5
Resin Profile: High resin
Odour Description: cleaning chemicals, diesel fuel, fruit,
citrus, with sharp sweet & sour undertones.
Flavour Description: diesel fuel / ripe fruits / citrus / with
sweet & sour undertones
High Type: Intense up high, with lot's of body relaxation.
Pheno # 1: 63 -70 days
